My History: At 23 I finally got a doctor to listen to me about my stomach pain and they offered an ultrasound. I now am thankful that the mass they spotted on the ultrasound couldnt be identified via ultrasounds/MRI/CT or any other imaging as it led to a laporoscopy and hysteroscopy that found:
•Extensive endometriosis (lasered)
•A cyst (removed)
•Fibroids (all but 3 removed)
•Unusually endo thickened uterus walls that needed a DNC (scrapped out)
•My right ovary was adhered with endo to my lower abdomen wall (explaining the strange pains they had told me was nothing)
•and a couple of other bits....
So I am now the proud owner of:
Needless to say endo is annoying!!!
I was given the Merina and it was amazing....my periods stopped and (overshare coming) the bowel bleeding i had everymonth ceased also.
Sadly when i got urinary symptoms (unrelated to coil) the doctors made me remove it in case. WORST DECISION EVER!!
It has been a year since removing the coil and a few months ago I started feeling fatigued, feverish, stomach pains, nausea, sweats and it all culminated in waking up in agony. A diagnosis of a twisted cyst and one ultrasound later I now have beautiful 3D images of my endometrioma.
Essentially a cyst filled with endometriosis.
I am getting the coil back in 7 days and hoping it will dry the endometriosis in the cyst up but am approaching my next period and am having really bad pains, fevers and dizzyness....I wandered if anyone else has had the pleasure of one of these cysts and if the coil does help??????
ALSO my weight is just crazy atm and it wont budge.....do others find this too????
So nice to find a community about this....feels lonely sometimes.
